You can try advisory firms. They like people who have done disputes related matters because they can foresee risks.

Then like that why do law sia. The attraction was of an industry with a high barrier to entry, which promised comparatively greater rewards for those who managed to cross that barrier. Now the rewards are basically nonexistent.

Might as well do another degree course in local uni that is easier to get good honours in. Since competing with these people anyway

That's why... it's a "calling"... and why new entrants have been asked (since eons ago) to re-examine their motivations.

Sigh. Disappointing that a protected, siloed industry can't deliver. Law degree no better than if did biz or fass going forward.

What is the value or xferable skills? It's a highly specialized body of knowledge with limited application to work. Sell car next time nobody give a shiat if I tell customer he can pay me in peppercorns

Default working full time (from home) while taking Part B

local uni student here who is considering accepting an SGunited traineeship role while studying for part B.

the traineeship role is with a mid sized company but there'll definitely be a steady flow of work. mostly WFH. somedays go office.

is it manageable to work during Part B and still pass? not aiming for distinctions or anything like that. not taking hard electives like ACP.

i had decent grades in law school but have been slacking during part B. but will definitely buck up now to manage time better.

anyone who worked during part B, please feel free to share

Hearsay study Uptron degree can get $66k/month job higher than any law degree. But only non-sinkies need apply.

Doesn't sound like you working at law firm. If work at law firm, experience useful for Part B.

If not, not sure you can survive

the work is legal in nature so it'll be helpful for a legal career but nope it's not at a law firm.

i would think that working at a law firm and working at a company would be about the same though ... it would still be work. e.g. wouldn't doing liti work for law firm during part B be quite stressful
